Capital Allowances Act 2001

Section 278: Building used by more than one licensee

981.This section is based on part of section 18(6) of CAA 1990. It excludes buildings used by more than one licensee unless all the licensees use the building for qualifying trades.

982.There is a minor change. Section 18(6) of CAA 1990 applies only to trades. This means a building might fail to qualify as an industrial building because one licensee is carrying on not a trade but an undertaking by way of trade – despite the fact that such undertakings are “qualifying trades”. This section removes the anomaly. See Change 32 in Annex 1.
